Happy New Year! Not only is it a new year, but a new decade as well,
one sure to bring fashions we’ll all long for. But before we look
forward to the fashions of the future, it’s always fun to say farewell
to the fads of the previous decade and determine what styles were most
popular and which designers ruled the runway. It’s easy to see the
most popular styles were the reemergence of the 80’s and all its
day-glow glory; the ultra chic twist that was added to the hippie look
and lifestyle; and the unfortunate hipster style that ruled street
fashions. It is not as easy, however, to pick one designer who was more successful than any other during a ten year long stretch, but one person who does come to mind is Stella McCartney.
McCartney’s work with Chloe at the beginning of the decade won her a
VH1/Vogue Designer of the Year award, as well as the opportunity to
dress Madonna for her wedding. Having celebrity friends such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler wear your designs doesn’t hurt, but neither does the fact that her collections are made up of clothing modern women can wear and look professional, confident, relaxed and feminine all at once.
